Default Is it possible to buy in-wall grilles?

Once upon a time, Parts Express sold in-wall speaker grille/frame combinations with blank wood inside, so you could essentially mount a kit speaker into the wall.

Does anything like that exist any more?

I looked quite a bit but only see cloth, and PA-style punched metal.

I suppose one could use shallow car 6x9 grilles and maybe get a 5" and tweeter in there, but not sure that would look too good even once painted.

I'm planning to go in-wall next summer but really prefer to use kit speakers, as top-notch in-walls seem to be quite expensive.

PE still sells them as p/n 302-524 (white grill) or 302-526 (black grill):
In-Wall Mounting System | 302-524

A few years ago I used one of these to create the opening for a 15" infinite baffle sub that I mounted in a stud wall in my home. It's still in use and working and looking great. It's very unobtrusive.
